Our vision is to create the clinically effective digital health care system of tomorrow for all Ontarians.

Our goal is to offer timely, high quality evaluations of digital health technologies at various stages of maturity by partnering with leading experts in the health and technology sectors. Together, we harness insights from Ontario’s world-leading experts in digital health economic evaluation, implementation, policy, and practice to support the Ministry of Health.


  1. Build a streamlined, responsive needs assessment process for both innovative and mature digital technologies.
  2. Provide timely, but scientifically rigorous and clinically applicable real time evaluations of digital technologies that are tailored to the specific needs of the clinical problem or technology solution.
  3. Provide clear, practical advice to health system stakeholders, agencies, and the Ministry regarding procurement, adoption, policy making and investment decisions.
  4. Build provincial capacity for rapid standardized evaluations of digital technologies, conducted in various clinical settings across the province.
